Can Latisse Cause Dizziness?

I have been using Latisse for a week now and have been experiencing alot of Vertigo or Dizziness. Prior to using Latisse I was perfectly fine. Can this be caused by Latisse? If so, will it go away if I continue to use it?

Latisse Does Not Cause Dizziness

Dizziness is not a side effect that has been reported with Latisse.Fortunately, side effects from Latisse are quite uncommon. Over two million prescriptions for Latisse have now been filled and less than 4 percent of people experienced redness, irritation and itching of the upper eyelid which was reversible upon discontinuation. If your vertigo or dizziness persist you should see your internist or family physician for a check up to look for the cause.

Latisse side effects

Hello ~

It is highly unlikely that Latisse would cause dizziness as there is very minimal system absorption.  There is a vast number of etiologies that may cause dizziness and persistent symptoms warrant further investigation. I recommend that you follow-up with your primary physician for a proper evaluation.

Latisse and Dizziness...

No, this is highly unlikely.  Dizziness has not been reported as a side effect of Latisse.  There is more than likely another cause for your dizziness.  Follow up with your Primary Care Physician as  soon as possible.

Good luck.

Latisse should not cause dizziness

It would bre very unusual for Latisse to cause dizziness because the blood levels to get to the brain are simply not influenced to the point that it could possibly cause vertigo.

Dizziness is not related to Latisse

Neither Latisse [as applicated to the eyelashes] nor Lumigan [bimatoprost generic name] has been known to cause dizziness. There is not enough systemic absorption to cause systemic side effects.

Can Latisse cause dizziness?

No, not when applied to the eyelashes. I am not familiar with whether it can when used as eyedrops (Lumigan).

VND (when the patient says " I feel Veak and Dizzy") can not be caused by applying Latisse to the lashes.
